you were happy to do that so close to an election when some might say politically that wasn't the best thing to do. >> this is much more important than any election, piers. this is the livelihood of the people in my state when the president does this evenings that deserve praise, i will give him praise. when the president does things that deserve scorn, i will give him scorn. people know that about me. i am not going to play politics with this issue. this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. people expect me to get the job done. when they ask me a question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been on this? he's been great. >> this killed ambassador christopher stevens, the country's terrorism chief now says it was a terrorist attack. >> clearly the death of ambassador christopher stevens continues to reverberate and the truth or otherwise of the circumstances leading up to his death seem to be pretty vague to put it mildly. where do you think we are with this? >> well, let me tell you what's not vague and that is five days aft
predictable political problem. this is the cover of "the washington post" the day after the election saying time to deal with the debt. everybody knows it. that was the whole idea, right? this was the big plan. election year is too divisive to get anything done. just kick the lame duck. so what happened? why can't congress find a way to work together, even with a gun at their head? >> because they don't get along. i think it may have been naive of some of us to think that the election was going to be the magic formula and they would play well in the sand box after the election. what's it going to take? i think it's going to take for us to go off the cliff and the american public demanding action. i think we're going to see that over and over again. it's going to be the american public demanding action on gun control. it's going to be the american public demanding action on immigration because we have to force them to act. >> but american public also has to stop acting as if they play no role in this. when you look at our politics over the last 20 years, if you were a moderate democrat and i
say more things are on the table than were before the election. the pessimist would say yeah, but there still isn't the substance of an agreement. >> the mechanics, i mean, what we have -- on the obama side, you have an election that pretty much, you know, they took as a mandate, if you will, where, you know, the very issue of taxes was sort of legislative, and the americans basically said they agreed with the president, saying that taxes need to rise on the wealthy. and then you have the right wing of the republican party who won also by wide margins in many deeply conservative districts. and they think they have a mandate. so in a way, it's like the two mandates are canceling each other out. they each think that they are -- and that is why we're frozen. i don't know if it's been that way -- i don't know if the mechanics have been such that it has been so polarized to the point where it's been paralyzing. >> where they feel like they've each won. >> it doesn't baffle me, it sort of angers me is that the conservative republicans who won by overwhelming margins in their distri
in doing the right thing and actually representing the people who elected you. >> my new year's message to washington is this, there are not enough wealthy people or corporations to keep you in office. in that light, please simply grow up, govern, but most importantly, support middle class policies. >> americans, as you can see, are clearly very frustrated with lawmakers. at this moment, there are no deal yet to be reported when it comes to trying to keep your taxes from going up. government spending for things like education, research and investments in infrastructure will also take a big hit. but my next guest says that our defense department is in a much better position to endure a hit like that. lawren lawrence korb joins me in washington. he's former assistant secretary of defense. doctor, thanks for being with us. >> nice to be with you. >> you say the defense department can afford budget cuts but many are going to worry this is going to somehow undermine our national security. what do you say? >> i have to say compared to where we were, we are talking about the base birnlgt the w

election. on november 6th president obama beat republican rival mitt romney to win a second term. what other stories topped the list and what do they tell us about the world we live in today. john fund is a columnist for "national review magazine" he joins us to weigh in on this. john, good to see you. merry christmas to you. >> thank you. kelly: we hope you're doing well. we know the top story was the election, it was a bitter fight to the end, president obama winning re-election. what does it tell us, though, about the campaign of mitt romney, and the mood of the country then, because we had so many other big stories affect the outcome of the election. >> well, this election, i think, was a very curious one, because president obama made some history. normal lee an incumbent with an economy that weak and no particular prospects of it getting better wouldn't have won re-election. but president obama was able to take advantage of i think dramatic stumbles on the part of mitt romney, the 47% line and various other things, absolutely. kelly: does it surprise you that mitt romney's people

is a horrible thing that people can spend and waste this amount of money on elections. think of all the people that could be benefit -- could benefit from that money. >> there have been two elections since i've been in america. there have been two elections where one party has had far more financial power than the other. one was here in california with meg whitman, and one was nationally. romney clearly had more money than obama for most of that campaign, and in both cases, the one with the most money lost. >> isn't that great? >> what does that tell you about the american people? >> the people are getting smarter. they're going, i don't like all this amount of money spent on this election. campaign finance reform is very important, and i hope somebody does something about it. you should have a given amount, equal amount, equal air time, and that's it. that idea of corporations being people. no, no, it's not -- this is a country of, by, and for the people, not of, by, and for the corporation. you know, it's like -- because i'm so against gmos, the modified food, and i'm so against lobbying by
